The Addams Family 

Join Morticia, Gomez, Wednesday, Pugsley and the rest of the The Addams Family in this musical, presented by The Phipps Children’s Theater. 

They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky. This hit Broadway musical comedy embraces the wackiness in every family and features an original story that’s every father’s nightmare. 

Shows are Fridays, March 4 and 11, at 7 p.m.; Saturdays, March 5 and 12, at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.; Sundays, March 6 and 13, at 2 p.m.

The show is about 70 minutes with no intermission and is appropriate for ages 5 and up. Tickets start at $15. 

Snowshoe Discovery Walk

Pop over to William O’Brien State Park, 16821 O’Brien Trail North, Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota, to learn what snowshoeing is all about.

The dates for the beginners adventures are March 5 and 6, 1:30-3:30 p.m.

Enjoy a winter nature experience with just you or the whole family. The park naturalist will give a brief how-to-snowshoe lesson and lead a walk through a winter landscape. Bring your own snowshoes or borrow our historic wooden ones for free. 

No experience necessary. Dress in warm layers. Snowshoes will fit over your winter boots. 

If there isn't enough snow, a nature hike still will be taken. 

This program has limited space. Reserve your spot by emailing or by calling Sean at 651-539-4986. Programs are free with a $7 daily or $35 annual MN State Parks vehicle permit.
